Beer Tasting Panel Meeting @ The Old Courthouse
Jul 15 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

CAMRA Tasting Panels are responsible for tasting all the real ales that are regularly brewed within their area, and for submitting the descriptions to CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide. They also put forward beers to CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain Competition and members can get involved with beer judging if they wish.

All of the Panel members are volunteers who have been trained by CAMRA. No experience is necessary, just a good nose, a taste for a variety of beers and a willingness to fill in tasting cards throughout the year. The panel also meets occasionally.

The next Cheltenham Tasting Panel will be open to all CAMRA members to attend, see what the panel does and, if interested, find out how training can be arranged to join a panel. Details of the next panel meeting are:

Sunday July 15th at 19:30

Old Courthouse, Regent Street (opposite the Everyman Theatre)


Following that we may also visit the Sandford Park Alehouse or other locals, depending on beer availability.

If anyone is interested in attending please email
